§ 80. Mr. OUTHWAITE
asked what is the offence for which certain stokers of the "Zealandia" have been sentenced to two years' imprisonment?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The men were tried on two charges: 1. Making a mutinous assembly. 2. Wilfully disobeying the lawful command of two of their superior officers when ordered to fall in on the quarter deck. Several points of law are being examined by the legal authorities, which must be disposed of before I can deal with the case.
